3.0D mechanic in Toronto
 
Hi all,
I'm looking for a competent diesel mechanic in Toronto Ontario area.. using dealer for now, just get a feeling that beyond an oil change they really have no technical idea and i would rather pay money to someone with diesel expertise.
any suggestion will be appreciated.

cheers

I have been looking as well incase one day a big repair job is needed. So far I have done oil changes, installed upgraded turbo hose, fixed broken washer fluid tube, swapped out battery. My buddies ( non CRD benz mechanics) have helped me do 4wd service and suspension repair.
We need to find a private garage that does sprinter van service, same engine as ours but those vans are doing migher milage.

Well, one good thing about our jeeps is that you can check your own engine faulut codes via the ignition. go to utube for that.

Nice to know im not alone.. id like to find someone who can do a major service including de-coking as i have a high mileage diesel and its well over due.
Finding im using a little more diesel than previously.. Been changing oil and fuel filter on time but cant seem to get my head round the MPG issue!!!

The sprinter idea is smart, far more of those than Jeeps flying around

lets keep em peeled
Cheers guys

Hi, I have been looking for the old times diesel mechanic list and luckily found yours, itís really hard to find a good diesel mechanic now days and if we did they ask a huge load of money. But in old time mechanic work was good and on time. Now everyone owns a bike.

Seeing as there are a few of us in Ontario, maybe we should have a little get together and just shoot the poop about our jeeps. And what we have done to them, and what a good dealership etc is to go to. Just an idea.
